Stein Ringen presents his book, "The Perfect Dictatorship: China in the 21st Century". The Chinese political economy is like no other system known to man, now or in history. This book explains how the system works and where it may be moving.

  • What kind of leader is Xi Jinping, where is he leading China and how radically is he changing the regime?
  • How is the apparatus of the party-state made up and how does it work?
  • Is a new ideological foundation in the making?
  • Is there a ‘totalitarianism with Chinese characteristics’?
Welcome to the East Asian Studies Program

Undergraduate study of East Asia at UC Davis is not concentrated in a single department. The major draws faculty from many disciplines, including anthropology, history, sociology, economics, political science, religion, languages, and literature.


The UC Davis program recognizes that East Asian studies majors often come to the University with little or no background in Asian cultures, and that the career possibilities are exceptionally varied. To meet these two problems, the program offers a background core of basic courses in East Asian history, humanities, social sciences, and languages, plus a wide range of more advanced and specialized courses from which student and advisor tailor an individualized program of study.
